1 Overview

Cisco MDS 9148 Switch

The Cisco MDS 9148 Multilayer Fabric Switch has 48 Fibre Channel ports with speeds of 8, 4, 2, and 1 Gbps. The Cisco MDS 9148 Switch is a top-of-rack(TOR) Fibre Channel switch based onSystem-on-a-Chip(SOC) technology, which is a Cisco innovation. The Cisco MDS 9148 Multilayer Fabric Switch has these features:

16, 32, or 48 default licensed ports and an 8-porton-demandlicense.

8-,4-,2-,1-Gbpsfull line rates.

128 buffers available as a shared pool to each port group: 32 buffers per Fibre Channel (FC) port. A maximum of 125 buffers per port in a port group.

Fair bandwidth arbiters.

Redundant power supplies and fans.

Enterprise class features such as In-ServiceSoftware Upgrades (ISSU), Virtual SANs (VSANs), security features, and quality of service (QoS).

Consistency with NX-OS.

The front of the Cisco MDS 9148 Switch contains the LEDs, the console and management ports, and 48 8-GbpsFibre Channel Ports. SeeFigure 1.

Step 2 Connect the power cable to the AC power receptacle, and then plug it in (seeFigure 6).

The Cisco MDS 9148 Switch supports only AC power supply. The power supply status is indicated on a front panel LED.

The Cisco MDS 9148 Switch includes a front panel reset button that resets the switch without cycling the power.

Step 3 Power up the switch (seeFigure 6).

6 Setting Up a Network

To set up a network, follow these steps:

Step 1 Ensure that the Mgmt0 port is connected to the management network.

Step 2 Ensure that the console port is connected to the PC serial port (or to a terminal server), as shown inFigure 7. For example, on a Windows PC used as a terminal emulator, you can use HyperTerminal. The default baud rate on the console port is 9600.

Send documentation comments to mdsfeedback-doc@cisco.com

Step 3 Use the switch setup utility that appears on the console connection.

Step 4 Use the switch setup utility to do the following:a. Set the admin password for the switch.

Caution Make sure that you configure a strong password. Short,easy-to-decipherpasswords are not allowed by CiscoNX-OSsoftware. Strong passwords are at least eight characters long and contain numbers, uppercase letters, and lowercase letters.

b. Assign an IP address and a netmask to the switch, as shown inExample 1.

Example 1 IP Address Step in the Setup Utility

Continue with Out-of-band(mgmt0) management configuration? {yes/no]:yes

Mgmt0 IPV4 address: 209.165.200.225

Mgmt0 IPV4 netmask: 255.255.255.224

c. Set up the default gateway.

Note The switch is now ready to be managed via the Mgmt port using Telnet or Device Manager or Fabric Manager.

7 Connecting Devices

To connect devices, follow these steps:

Step 1 Connect a server to the switch (seeFigure 8).

Step 2 Connect a storage device to the switch (seeFigure 8).

8 Installing Cisco Device Manager

To install Cisco Device Manager, follow these steps:

Step 1 Enter the IP address you assigned to your switch in yourAddress field of you browser to begin the Cisco Device Manager installation.

Step 2 Click theDevice Manager link, shown inFigure 9.

Figure 9 Cisco Device Manager Installation

Step 3 Follow the onscreen instructions to install Cisco Device Manager.

9 Using the Quick Config Wizard

To enable ports and assign zone memberships, follow these steps:

Step 1 Click theDevice Manager icon on your desktop to log in.

Step 2 Enter a password in thePassword field (seeFigure 10).

Step 3 ClickOpen (seeFigure 10).

Figure 10 Device Manager Login

Step 4 ClickFC, and then chooseQuick Config.

Step 5 Enable two ports by checking the two corresponding check boxes in theEnable column, as shown inFigure 11.

Figure 11 Enable Zone Ports

Step 6 Select one of the two enabled ports that you want in a zone by checking its check box in thePorts Zoned To area. When you check this check box, the second enabled port automatically becomes checked. Both ports are now members of the same zone.

Step 7 Click Next.

You see a summary of your changes, as shown in Figure 12.

Step 8 ClickFinish to save your changes.

Step 9 Repeat Steps 2 through 5 to create more zones.

Note A maximum of 12 zones with two ports each can be created with the Quick Config Wizard.

Note For more information about installing Cisco Device Manager and using the Quick Config Wizard, see theCisco MDS 9000 Family Fabric Manager Configuration Guide.

10 Creating VSANs

To create VSANs, follow these steps:

Step 1 Click theDevice Manager icon on your desktop to log in.

Step 2 Enter a password in thePassword field (seeFigure 13).

Step 3 Click theOpen button (seeFigure 13).

Step 4 ClickFC, and then chooseVSANs.

Step 5 Click Create.

Step 6 Use the Create VSAN General dialog box to create a VSAN, as shown inFigure 14.

Figure 14 VSAN Creation

Step 7 ClickFinish to save your changes.

Step 8 Repeat Step 6 and 7 to create more VSANs.

Note For more information on how to create VSANs, see theCisco MDS 9000 Family CLI Configuration Guide.

This completes the installation of your Cisco MDS 9148. The switch is now ready to use.
